We also had no idea how far the brainstorm we came up with that day would go.
We figured OR-7 needed a legitimate name. He'd already become the first wolf west of the Cascades in 65 years (and would soon become the first wolf in California in almost a century). A celebrity of his status needed to be know by a name other than one ascribed by the collar around his neck.
So, we launched a naming (and art) contest to connect people from across Oregon and the world to the amazing journey of this remarkable wolf. Little did we know how far the news would spread.
Not long after we added another amazing chapter to the story of OR-7 (now known as Journey!) as NBC's Brian Williams gave the story national exposure on NBC Nightly News. Watch the video below:
